Vehicles powered by polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cells (PEMFCs) are energy-efficient and eco-friendly, but despite increasing public interest in PEMFC-powered transportation, current performance of materials that […]

University of Bern has led an international research team that has succeeded in developing an electrocatalyst for hydrogen fuel cells which, in contrast to the catalysts commonly used today, does not require a carbon carrier and is therefore much more stable. The new process is industrially applicable and can be used to further optimize fuel […]

Washington State University researchers have made a key advance in solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) that could make the highly energy-efficient and low-polluting technology a more viable alternative to gasoline combustion engines for powering cars. Led by PhD graduate Qusay Bkour and Professor Su Ha in the Gene and Linda Voiland School of Chemical Engineering […]

University of Delaware (UD) researchers have identified ammonia as a source for engineering fuel cells that can provide a cheap and powerful energy source for fueling cars, trucks and buses with a reduced carbon footprint. The researchers at UD are working on technology to make fuel cells cheaper and more powerful so that fuel cell […]

Researchers at Kyushu University in Japan can now provide new insights into the reactions occurring in solid-oxide fuel cells. By using realistic simulations with atomic-scale models of the electrode active site based on microscope observations, instead of the simplified and idealized atomic structures employed in previous studies, a better understanding of how the structures in […]
